Aliza Rosen’s AYR Media has joined forces with producer Alex Baskin to unearth the cons and crimes of Wall Street and Hollywood scammer David Bloom. The partners are producing a new podcast and developing a non-fiction television series, both of which will track the professional con artist’s decades of deceit, shedding light on previously unknown scams and victims, as well as the high-profile ruses that landed Bloom behind bars and in the press.
The new podcast, KING CON: THE WHIZ KID (wt), will be narrated by one of Bloom’s latest victims – model, “The Hills: New Beginnings” cast member and Pizza Girl Founder and CEO Caroline D’Amore. The socialite recently posted on Instagram about her own harrowing experience with Bloom, which involved him impersonating the president of a major grocery store franchise as part of his elaborate scheme.
D’Amore will serve as a producer on the new podcast, while Rosen and Baskin will executive produce alongside veteran “con hunter” Johnathan Walton (host and EP of AYR’s “Queen of the Con”).
“When it comes to con men, David Bloom is in a league of his own,” said Rosen. “With Alex and Johnathan onboard, and Caroline taking centerstage armed with heaps of personal evidence and access, we feel uniquely equipped to peel back the layers on Bloom’s ridiculously long list of misdeeds.”
Said Baskin, “This is a story that needs to be told. It’s compelling and cautionary at the same time, and I couldn’t be more proud to work with this team to bring attention, awareness and justice to this matter.”
Added D’Amore, “This is a deeply personal mission for me. Since posting about David, I’ve heard from so many other people who were scammed by him, as well as victims of similar cons. In sharing my experience and the accounts of others, I’m hopeful that we can help prevent future targets from falling into the same trap.”
